New Ghost In The Shell Animation Teaser (Video)

So after the disappoint of hearing who has been cast in the live action DreamWorks adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (Click Here to see that post), I definitely needed some good anime news to lift my spirits. Well that lift came yesterday as the first teaser for the 2015 Ghost in The Shell animated movie was released. Now I’m not exactly sure where this fits into the series and it’s in Japanese. However, Anime News Network was kind enough to translate it for us which I have posted below.

Text: Original Work – Masamune Shirow
Text: A work in celebration of 25 years
Text: The awakened ghost whispers…
Text: Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie
Text: Opens in early summer 2015

Just to clarify, the movie will premiere early summer in Japan but there is no word so far on when it will be released here in the states. Apparently there was a four part mini series titled Ghost in the Shell: Arise that I missed out on so I will have to track that down and watch it. I’ve seen the first two animated movies (loved and own the original) and have watched part of the TV series. I am looking forward to catching up with the series and then watching this new movie…Damn, all this Ghost in the Shell talk makes me wanna go back and watch the original again.

Check out the teaser for the 2015 Ghost in the Shell animated movie and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Are you excited for another animated Ghost in The Shell movie and do you think it should be kept that way instead of being turned into an American live action adaptation?
